Discovered I'd missed punching two holes of the pattern, but that's been corrected now.
The weird thing was, quite a few things seemed to be loose on the machine, so things went a bit awry to start with. I suppose it's possible that the machine shakes itself a little loose at times. Either that, or it's the cat!
*He* seems to be on elastic tonight, keeps wanting to come in, then out, then in, then out. So have let him out and gone upstairs. Ha! That'll teach him!

Isn't it amazing how just changing the backing has such a radical effect on the size of the swatch? They are both 40sts wide by 60rows high, at T3/3. I'm going with the one on the right - it's less holey than its mate.
Off downstairs to see if there's owt worth watching on TV. Oh, yeah, I guess I'll have to let the cat in too! :)
